A Tale Of USA Triplets & Making A Splash ‘Back Home’ During The World Cup In Japan

Swim siblings: Mick, Kevin and Jay Litherland (left to right) as featured in Countryline Magazine a year ago - Mick and Kevin sought to qualify for other nations but it is Jay, for the USA, who ends up going to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Swift siblings can be found in the depths of swimming history but rare (unheard of?) to find triplets vying not only for national-squad places but berths on one of the toughest team cuts of all, the US Junior roster. In Tokyo this morning at the penultimate round of the World Cup back in the land of his birth, Jay Litherland stepped up to a 4:08.66 lead time in the ‘slowest heats’ of the 400m medley. A great effort for the one brother of identical twins Mick and Kevin Litherland to have stemmed from a separate egg back in 1995
